Fodor's Avators: What Would You Be?

Avators are an online phenmenon which i don't know all that much about except that virtual worlds are created and folks assume various roles in this virtual world, which works rather like the real world - with money, buying, selling things (sometimes with real money), etc.

If Fodor's created an Avator European Travel World or European Workaday World really What Role Would You Play?

Me - i'd be the owner of a B&B hotel in Amsterdam with a Coffeeshop attached. No doubt

and i'd own some Agricultural tourism gourmet farm in Tuscany for a second home

What kind of avator would you be? Onw a Parisian cafe, B&B in Swiss Alps, Mountain Guide? Pub Owner? Etc.

???

I only use avatars on other forums, when I add a picture. Sometimes I use one of my dogs, sometimes I find a suitable picture online to use.
I have never thought of creating a "second-life" type of Avatar. i have enough problems with my first life without creating a second one.

2nd thought maybe i'd be a London Bobby - cushy job, overpaid underworked - not really a on the street Bobby but some desk-jockey where i'd inspect exotic dancing pubs, etc. Kind a Talibanesque morals vice squad.

Nothing, but then I think avatars are just eye candy for the cerebrally challenged.

Producer of the finest chevre in my department of France, and living on outskirts of a village with two excellent competing bakeries. Profits adequate for periodic vacations.

I'd have to be an OLD goat though i suspect goats on goat farms don't live all that long before heading to the nearest boucherie
